He has 27 butts - he can make 9 cigars out of them
From the 9 cigars he smokes he can collect 9 butts - and make 3 cigars
From the 3 cigars he smokes he can collect 1 butt and make one cigar
Hence 13.

He will be able to smoke 13 cigars, as he has 27 butts he can make 9 cigars & get 9 butts then again he uses those butts nd made 3 cigars nd then at last he has 3 butts to make another one. So total no. Of cigars r 9+3+1=13.
